nomination since president obama nominated him more than three weeks ago hagan tried to damp down much of the bipartisan criticism. chuck schumer, democrat of new york, key democrats shelved their skepticism and say they support him. it's not decided whether all 55 democrats are in his camp. hagel has to win over, assuming he has 55 he has to win over just five of his fellow republicans. only one republican senator thad cochran of mississippi said he is in favor. let's go to capitol hill with chief congressional correspondent dana bash. usually when a president nominates a senator, it's a no brainer, he gets the support of all his former colleagues, we saw that with john kerry, despite being a liberal democrat almost every republican voted for him to be secretary of state. dana, why has this been a heavy lift for president obama even though chuck haguele is a former senator? >> reporter: >> it really is fascinating, you're exactly right, jake, generally there is a deference given to the club or former members of the club. that is the opposite. you can see chuck hagel trying to get comf
spending. let's reform entitlements. let's get the deficit down. big picture stuff that never really surfaced in the obama administration. >> it absolutely didn't. and again, perhaps that's a reason the council is going away. the recommendations that -- the big picture items that the council recommended were never really adopted by the obama administration, never pursued, despite the fact that these are people the president appointed and had significant business experience. and somebody again that would lend credibility to us as republicans and democrats in congress as a way to come together to get this country's economy moving. in my view, the situation has not changed. in fact, as we saw by the numbers you just reported, the lack of jobs, the slowing of the economy are still here, perhaps getting more evidence that things are going in the wrong direction, not the right direction. and all the more reason to have something to coalesce around the darn partisanship of washington, d.c. and the differences between congress. and i could say every time i say to my democratic colleagues tha

. the white house thinks the president's council on jobs and combativeness is shutting down. the announcement made on the same day, in fact come as weekly jobless claims unexpectedly skyrocketed. president obama created the jobs council back in 2011, billing the advisory board of prominent business leaders and economists from around the nation who were to offer proposals to help spur job creation and economic growth. the president only met with his jobs counselor handful of times, four to be exact, rejecting or ignoring many proposals, including a plan to lower tax rates in order to broaden the overall tax base. the council's last official meeting one and one year ago. unemployment has dropped from more than 9 percent of the council's inception to the current rate of 78%, but more than 23 million americans remain of work or are stuck in part-time jobs , wanted full-time work for. meantime, we learned initial jobless claims rose to 360,000 last week, an unexpected jump of over 38,000 from the prior week's four year low. the obama economy seems stuck in neutral. recoveries fragile. yesterday th
? well, all of america now knows it was an empty promise, just like when president obama promised health insurance premiums would go down. over and over again the president said that his law would lower premiums by $2,500 a family by the end of his first term in office. the president hasn't talked much about that hately. didn't hear anything about it in the inaugural address and i don't expect to hear very much about it in the state of the union. that's because average premiums across the country for families haven't gone down, not by the $2,500 that the president promised, not by even $1,000, not even by a cent. instead, average family premiums have actually gone up by more than $3,000 during the president's first term. that's pretty big math there on the part of president obama and the american people unfortunately are the ones who have to pay for his mistake. because of his policies, health insurance is a lot less affordable for a lot of people and for a the although of small businesses. -- and for a lot of small businesses. many small businesses are facing what is turning out to be a
